  • Abstract

    Bus manufacturing is one of the important assets in automotive industries as well as mode of public transportation. The design process is difficult and long throughout time. Moreover, there are many manuals, rules and regulation according to different standard which make the standardization and design process to be difficult and time consuming. Hence, this project describes the use of an expert system shell for commercial bus design. In bus manufacturing field, design of commercial bus is heavily depending on human experts. With the help of expert system, process of design commercial bus will be shortened up to 56.5% compared to conventional way. The developed system can be used as a training module for inexperienced personnel. In this research work, the fault diagnosis system was developed by using Kappa-PC expert system shell. It is supported by object orientated technology for the MS window environment. Lastly, the developed system will be validated with a case study to verify the capability of the developed system.
